5.0 out of 5 stars A new dawn, 4 July 2010
This review is from: Youth & Young Manhood (Audio CD)
For a long time I felt that the death of Jon Bonham and resulting break up of Led Zeppelin in 1980 meant the end of real blues rock. But no longer! Slowly and almost under the radar, a four piece with long hair, beards and lots of denim stroll onto the scence. The simple riffs and catchy lyrics that filled the charts were confronted with sexed up blues funk and incoherant lyrics that allude to some vey strange goings on. The upshot is one of the best debut albums of the last 20 years. The Kings mix hard rock with blues and country and the result is a skin tingling, toe tapping, noise screaming experience that draws you back in time and time again. Each track is sensual overload and the distressed sounds of Caleb Followill's voice gives this record it's edge. Don't take my word for it, buy it and enjoy if for yourself

by Joe McGinniss
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Bellisimo, 17 April 2008
This is a book for anyone who has lost faith in the ability of football to amaze you. It is a wonderful account of joy, pain, scorn, fear, humiliation, anger, corruption and all the other things we love about football. Just read it and enjoy. Se molto buono!

5.0 out of 5 stars just ask the axis, 29 Aug. 2004
This review is from: Axis: Bold As Love (Audio CD)
'axis:bold as love' is far too often overlooked as a major triumph by the experience in favour of 'are you experienced' and 'electric ladyland'. however in my opinion it is by far and away their best work. although it doesnt hold the raw enery of 'are you experienced' and certainly lacks the power and muscle of 'electric ladyland' it has once supreme quality that the other albums lack, intimacy. from the musings of 'castles made of sand' to the longing of 'little wing' and the questioning behing 'if 6 was 9' this is the god father of acid rock. hendrix's guitar is cultured and mesmerising as always and he finds a new found subtly to his voice here. from the art work on the sleve to the last words of the title track this is a rare treat that lets you inside the mind of jimi, go get a copy and enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliance in the midst of anger, 27 July 2003
This review is from: Abbey Road (Audio CD)
the abbey road record is testoment to the true talents of the fab four. released as the penultimate beatles album, let it be coming after, this was the last works of the true godfathers of rock and roll. when john, paul, george and ringo where hardly speaking to each other they managed to compile this amazing work. the first half of the album contains some memorable tunes, harrison's 'something' and 'here coms the sun' being the pinnacle, but its really from 'you never give me your money' where the genius kicks in. eight peices of songs that are woven and mixed toghether to create an almost symphonic experience that leaves the listner bewildered and enthralled. abbey road is a true masterpiece that shows just how talanted the beatles were and is by far and away my favourite beatles album. it just takes you to a place that no other record can reach. sheer elegance in the face of so much bitter resentment. wondefull.

5.0 out of 5 stars sheer brilliance, 13 July 2002
This review is from: Led Zeppelin II (Audio CD)
to say that this album is heavy metal is truly misinterpret the musical genius that is plant, page, jones and bonham. from the opening riff of whole lotta love to the spiraling drums of moby dick, this is the quintessential blues rock album. anyone who has lost faith in the redemptive power of music should pick up this album, grab a beer and turn up the stereo. truly this is a masterpeice that combines the sexual desires of robert plant with the musical genius of jimmy page on the guitar and 'bonzo' on the drums. this could have been their undoing becuase to better this album would have been difficualt, however led zep 3 and 4 are no disgrace to the incandescent wonder of the greatest rock and roll band to have graced planet earth. sit back and enjoy people, i did and am still revelling in the light of this epic work.
zeppelin had an almost uncanny relationship between four outstanding musicians that are amoungst the best ever in their respective fields. i only wish that some bands today could find a the same desires and talants that zeppelin had becuase at the moment rock and roll is dying quickly.
